I often hear things like, “Do I have to prep meals?” or “I don’t have time to prep meals,” and my responses are always along the lines of, “No, you don’t have to, and you don’t have to reach your goals, either.” or “You can have results or you can have excuses, but you can’t have both.”
Meal prep is what separates the people who are dedicated and serious about their goals from those looking for a quick fix. It can be the difference-maker. When you weigh and measure your food and prep containers, you give yourself the best chance at reaching your goals — and reaching them faster.
We suggest spending one day a week cooking and prepping — the weekend is the perfect time to hit the grocery store and spend a day grilling or in the kitchen getting ready for the week. If you have meals prepped, you are far less likely to go off-plan (or “cheat”) and undermine your progress.
